Swap first round picks with the Bengals (Our 14 with their 21)pick up a 2nd and a 4th round pick
Release DeAngelo Williams
Release Chris Gamble
Release Ron Edwards
Release Jimmy Clausen
Release other cats
Sign Ramses Barden WR
Sign Sean Smith CB
Sign Terrance Knighton
1st round pick: Chance Warmack
We need to strengthen our lines, receiver can wait. (In a way, not having a superstar receiver forces Cam to be more accurate. So I'm not crying that our best receiver is eyeing retirement) When it comes to the Guard position, Chance is the best out of this class. A lot of you would say he won't last until 21, but go look at the past when it comes to that position. Last year, David DeCastro went 24 overall. A year before that, the Eagles drafted the first Gaurd at 23. So with rising draft stock of other players, Warmack will fall to the back end of the first round.
2nd round pick: Bacarri Rambo
I don't care what yall say about this kid, he was a ball hawk in the toughest division in college football. That got to count for something does it not? Had he played a full year, he would have been a top 15 pick for sure. He had 8 turnovers the previous year, and once he returned from his suspension early is the season, he followed up on that campaign with 6 total turnovers. You can actually look at his stats throughout his career, and see the mark of a ballhawk in it. I don't know what some of you are thinking, but this guy is the best safety in this class hands down!
2nd round pick (trade): Kyle Long
As I said before, this will probably be Gross' final year as a Panther. So it's best we start looking for his successor. Long is athletic, but raw. A year under Gross should help him develop into a good LT.
4th round pick: Darius Slay
I like Darius more and more. I believe if he has a strong combine, and his speed alone would do it, he will be a second round pick. Yet he has all the tools to be a good starting corner in the league.
4th round pick (trade): Joseph Fauria
Best value pick here. (With all the top DTs and WRs off the board) Has the skills to catch and block, so he's pretty much the most complete TE in this draft.
5th round pick: Devin Taylor
Much like concerning what some of you have said on Rambo, people are completely wrong about Taylor in saying he's a bad prospect. Yeah, I know he didn't get a lot of sacks inspite of Clowney being on the other side of him, but the dude still had 8.5 tackles for a loss. (3 of them being sacks) He had 6 passes defended, and over 40 tackles. Those are solid stats. Now, in his 2010 campaign, he put up 7.5 sacks with 13 tackles for a loss. I say by the time the combine is done, Taylor might be a third round pick in the least. It would be a mistake to pass up on this guy because he didn't get 20 sacks playing opposite Clowney. Let's not forget, Taylor was double-teamed a lot as well. He just needs to work on his technique, and he will be nightmare in the NFL.
6th round pick: Dustin Hopkins
Has the best leg in the college ranks. His accuracy is pretty good as well.
6th round pick (comp.): Joe Vellano
Vellano is the best DT in the ACC. He is low to the ground, and have the build to fight off blocks. Perhaps he can blossom into a great athlete. Become the next Warren Sapp without the attitude.
6th round pick (comp.): Rodney Smith
Usually most very tall receivers are "go up and get 'em" type guys. Players who come in around the goaline to catch a toss up touchdown. Yet Smith have a little "shake and bake" to his game. I like receivers who try to get yards after the catch through breaking tackles. Yet I wonder why he didn't have more touchdowns. From looking at his stats, it seems he was the third receiver on the depth chart. Hopefully, he has starting potential in the big leagues.

decent draft dont like the dt though. knighton started out good but he got in a bad club fight. also later on last year he lost his job to a chump. lol no..
i like rambo but thats a reach...ill say 3rd round for him.
not to excited bout those corners either. and you should have got a way better deep threat wr...its decent one all the way up to the 4th imo.
panthers already have bryant..."the big wr who has not done much yet". dont need more of that.

Kyle Long has too short of arms to play LT in the NFL. Warmack won't be there at 21. I think Lane Johnson at 21 and Warford in the 2nd round is more realistic.
My dream draft is to trade down pick up another 2nd and grab
Posted 30 January 2013 - 03:00 AM
Realistic trade down under your scenario:
#21) Desmond Trufant CB/ Washington
#41) Larry Warford OG/ Kentucky
#53) Chris Faulk OT/ LSU
#105) Jonathan Cyprien SS/ Florida International
#115) Kwame Geathers NT/ Georgia
5th) Brad Wing P/ LSU
6th) Levine Tolilolo/ TE Stanford
I would have put Da'Rick Rogers in there too, but at the moment he could go anywhere from the 2nd to the 4th depending on how teams view his off field problems. Would love him at #105 if he fell that far.
